Latest OneNote UWP update for Slow Ring Insiders brings color emojis, more

Earlier in the week, Microsoft dropped an app update for the OneNote UWP app for Fast Ring Insiders.  Today, Microsoft has followed up and done the same for the Slow Ring, delivering a similar update which brings new features, and a cleaner experience to the app (via Windows Central.)

Overall, the update pushes the latest Slow ring OneNote build to 7967.5750. The changelog for the update has not changed much compared to the Fast ring update, but it does introduce a smaller footprint in the interface, which means for a cleaner app experience. You may find the details below:

  • See more of your notes: We’ve heard your feedback about the inflated size of the ribbon, context menus, and page list and have reduced the overall footprint of the OneNote interface, leaving you with more room on your screen to view and edit your notes.
  • Graph your math equations: Write an equation on any page, click Draw > Math, and OneNote can now help you draw a graph.
  • Recover deleted notes: We’ve all deleted a note or section accidently. Now you can restore notebook content by opening the Recycle Bin. In your Notebooks list, right-click the notebook you want, and then click View Deleted Notes.
  • Make notes accessible: Use the Accessibility Checker to identify and fix accessibility issues in your notes before sharing them with other people.
  • Save time with new keyboard shortcuts: We’ve updated our list of Keyboard shortcuts in OneNote for Windows 10 to include all the latest ways you can accelerate your note-taking.
  • Drag and drop pages and sections: Keep everything organized with a quick drag and drop of pages or sections into different sections and notebooks.
  • Organize sections into groups: Create section groups to make organizing and navigating large notebooks even easier. Right-click the + Section button, and then click New Section Group.
  • Use full color emoji: Say goodbye to black and white emoji. Now you can express yourself in full color.

Given the roll out these features to both the Fast and Slow Ring Windows Insiders, it may not be long before OneNote UWP app users in the Production Ring see the same features in their app as well. As always, we invite you to check out the OneNote UWP app via the link below, and would love to hear your thoughts in the comments!
